This Rogue Sphynx Hybrid Integrated Amplifier Contains a MM Phono Preamplifier

This hybrid integrated amplifier from Rogue is beautifully made in America, includes a very good MM phono preamplifier and sells for $1295. Yes. $1295. So let's stop the whining about expensive gear, please! This hefty piece was superbly driving a pair of big, full range Eggleston floor standers.

I put on a 96k/24 bit file of "Can't You Hear Me Knockin'" from Sticky Fingers transferred from vinyl and cranked it. The sound was fantastic. It attracted a crowd in no time. Really, for pure value and considering it's made in the USA, this Rogue piece probably represented the best value I saw and heard at the show.

I didn't hear the phono section but based on previous experience with Rogue phono preamps, it's a safe bet it sounds good. Add a transformer if you need MC step-up.

I have one of their Cronus Magnum tube integrated amps and love it.

The new ones are not even close to that, it is because of the share-power they own (

I have been a Graphic Designer for about 12 years now. It seems that creativity is one of those things that you are 'supposed to be born with'. WRONG. As professional logo design displays on his book, you don't need to be great at drawing or using a computer.
